On the pictures she is not skiing, she is standing otuside their cabin in Uvdal, not really in ski clothes.
However..... except Ari Behns funeral she has attended one event this years, one. There has been inhouse events at the palace she could have attended, but I guess she now lives the life she probably would have if she would not have married Haakon, as a stay at home mum, just with alot of luxury.
The court is sending 88 year old Astrid on crutches and with a steel corsette to Trondheim for the Norwegian-swedish ski-tour this weekend, says alot about their different view on duty and work with health troubles. Se og hÝr informs us she has been to the Maldives for "rest".
I really think that the court should have been a bit more specific about the consequences of her illness. When they anounced it, it sounded like it would not be much different from what it used to be with som breaks or shorter days on forreign trips and such. But when its down to one event or so a month, if that is all her health can manage they should have said that. Now you get the sense she does the events she has interest in (litterature) or are maximum important (Nobel, national day, Holmenkollen), but dont bother with boring stuff she has to get dressed up for like official dinners, lunches and state visits, not to talk about normal "bread and butter" events.
But I guess she will be at the opening of the new Deichman library in Oslo on march 28th
wonder about Daisys birthday....
